Hessle Ceilidh Band

We have been playing ceilidhs for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, social and corporate events for over 15 years, and have built an outstanding reputation for delivering high-energy entertainment that gets everyone up and dancing. Our caller talks through each dance before we play the music, so even if you have never done ceilidh dancing before, you will soon pick it up.

We have a wide range of traditional and contemporary dances that we can play, from Scottish reels and jigs to Irish folk dances and American square dances. We can tailor our set to suit your event and audience, and we can provide recorded music during breaks.

We take pride in the quality of our musicianship, and our gigs are always lively, fun and memorable. We are fully insured and have our own PA system, suitable for small to medium-sized venues. So why not book The Hessle Ceilidh Band for your next event and let us get your guests up and dancing! Call Quentin on 07877434739 to book your ceilidh today.

Ceilidh Band In East Yorkshire

Planning a Ceilidh, Wedding celebration, Retirement or Birthday party in East Yorkshire? Why not book the Hessle Ceildh Band?

Hessle Ceilidh Band are based in the East Riding of Yorkshire near Hull. We are a five to ten piece band including a dance caller. We have whistle, fiddles, recorders, melodeon, guitar, bass, piano, bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, various percussion and sometimes shawm. Our gigs are vibrant and fun – but not for the faint of heart who don’t like a good old knees up! Look out for our community ceilidhs on the Events Diary page for any public dances.

Whatever the event, be it a Ceilidh or Barn Dance we have a vast amount of music that will create the right feel good factor for your event ranging from Scottish, Irish, European, Medieval and the traditional music of England.

But the band is only half the story – the other half is the caller – the person who shouts the moves out and guides you through the dances – we are really lucky to work with an exceptional caller who is full of energy and can get people up and enjoying themselves in no time – the dances are fantastic and really help to build a party atmosphere.

Our caller knows loads of amazing dances that are really great fun – has also been known to throw in the occasional story and exceptionally funny jokes to give the dancers time to rest and catch their breath.
